Summary: My first GPS was a Magellan Roadmate 700 for $1000 a few years ago. Most of the time, it would take 15 to 20 minutes to acquire enough satelites to navigate. I just purchased the Maestro 3100 containing up-to-date (April 2007) maps from Amazon for $165 (it's now $150!).
Summary: I bought this late in 2007 to help me from getting lost in Fairfax County VA. Since then, I've moved to Florida, and it's just as useful here. BUT YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE MECHANICAL LADY. She is almost always right.
Summary: I received this GPS unit for Christmas and am very happy with it. I doesn't have a lot of the bells and whistles of more expensive versions, but the screen is very clear and it does what I want it to do. I have two minor issues that keep me from giving it five stars.
Summary: I got this for my stepdad who is in his 70s. He is not what you would call a gadget guy. It is perfect for him because it is very simple to use. What some might call a lack of features is a actually a plus for him.
surprisingly good unit; 'questionable' customer service

Summary: The 3100 seems like a solid little GPS. I thought that the 3.5 inch screen would be too small, given how they are now making most GPS systems larger, but I've found it to be perfectly fine. Nice display; more than enough points of interest and all-around accuracy, around here anyway.
Summary: The features of this little unit are great; the voice commands, the auto rerouting, the cheerful graphics. You get the mounting bracket and power supply too. The only downside is that it is running WinCE, which makes the operating system bloated and thus it tends to slow down every once in a while,...
Summary: Definitely would recommend buying this used, works perfectly fine and I didn't have to spend a lot. Not the most amazing GPS ever, but it's simple to use and gets you to where you need to go. No complaints.
Summary: I've been testing this little guy out for week and I can't find much to complain about. It is my first GPS unit and I like it because it has a simple, easy-to-use interface. The instructions are loud and clear. There is an empty SD Memory slot that must be for something.
Summary: I have used it only for a week , Once for a long trip spanning 3 states, otherwise local routes. Pros ---- Nice interface, very easy to use,works right out of the box, minimal setup. very friendly & intuitive user interface.
